Lauren Sparks
RN (BSN)

Aesthetic Injector

Lauren is a Colorado native from Louisville, and moved back to Denver after spending quite some time in Texas. When not in scrubs, during the winter you can find her in the mountains skiing. During summer months you can find her belting some country lyrics at concerts or in a dog park with her adorable little frenchie- Sunny. Sunny is 7 years old, “She is the love of my life and the funniest little weirdo I’ve ever met! My heart and cheese are hers forever.” 

Nursing is Lauren’s second career and as she describes it, “the best decision I’ve ever made.” She has been an RN for 7 years, starting in acute care in adult Oncology. She has since been in aesthetics as both a laser specialist and cosmetic injector for the last 7 years. Lauren loves applying the combination of critical thinking and art. “A great injector understands this is not a “one size fits all” industry. There are many ways to accomplish an aesthetic goal, however, a knowledgeable injector will be able to achieve this goal in a skilled and beautiful way.”Her favorite laser treatment is IPL, she thinks it’s the perfect concoction for anti-aging and pigment correction. Her favorite injectable treatment is neurotoxin, “…because, next to therapy, it’s the best self-improvement tweak you’ll ever make!” When it comes to skin care, her most prized possession is SkinBetter Trio Moisturizer. She says it’s the perfect moisturizer for any climate, any age and any skin type. She loves the duality of the product as it can be used at am and pm so it also eliminates the need for multiple moisturizers for every day/season/holiday/ life event. 

What is one thing that no one knows about Lauren? She can sing “Head, Shoulder, Knees and Toes” in Japanese, BUT her biggest fear is to sing infront of people so her only audience is Sunny!

Nurse Morgan started her nursing career in the intensive care unit, where she built an amazing foundation for patient care. She has since entered the world of aesthetics and has worked in the cosmetic industry before becoming part of the TLR team.

Her favorite part of treating is being able to connect with patients and help them achieve their aesthetic goals. “It is so fulfilling to see patients confident and happy!”

Morgan’s favorite treatment is dermal filler as she loves to say, “a little bit of contour and lift can be a real game-changer!” Her favorite skin care item is ZO Skin Health Exfoliating Polish.

Nurse Morgan is native to Colorado and therefore knows all the best spots in the city! When Morgan isn’t injecting, you can find her hanging out with family and friends, partaking in game night and traveling. She is a connoisseur for yummy food and a glass of wine.

Even with her busy schedule she always makes sure to find time for some yoga sculpt! While Morgan does not have any pets quite yet, she hopes to get a puppy by the end of 2022.

Anais Villarreal

Patient Coordinator

Give a warm welcome to Denver’s Patient Coordinator, Anais Villarreal.

Anais moved to Denver from Texas in January of 2022. She was born and raised in a small town in Texas, where there was only one stoplight. Her upbringing consisted of true farm life, as she grew up seven miles outside of the main town on a farm- to say she was raised with more cows than humans is accurate! Since moving to Colorado, she has spent much of her time hiking, spending hours at the farmer’s market and hanging downtown with her friends.

Her true love? Traveling! Her favorite places to visit are Mexico and New York. She has since traded her cows for a cute, spoiled Chihuahua named Francis.

At the young age of 22, Anais opened her own business, a women’s clothing boutique! After closing her retail chapter, she headed for the mile high city and began working at Children’s Hospital as a guest relations associate.

Before joining the TLR team, Anais was a patient of the Denver clinic. Her favorite aspect of aesthetics is, “…how it can help people feel more confident and more beautiful!” Lip filler is her ultimate favorite treatment, she absolutely loves having full/plump Luxe lips.

If she had to choose just one product from our shelf, it would be the ZO Gentle Cleanser, “it leaves my skin feeling and looks so clean!”

Francesca Gudino

Meet our Administrative Assistant, Francesca aka Frankie!  Francesca recently moved from Northern California to Denver. Francesca grew up in the Bay area and after attending school in Arizona, decided to move to Colorado.

As she is new to the area, her favorite thing to do when she’s not manning the front desk is trying new restaurants. Have any good recommendations? Send them her way next time you’re in!

Francesca worked as a school teacher before joining The Luxe Room. She has had an appreciation for aesthetics for some time as her cousin works in a cosmetic clinic in California. Her favorite thing about aesthetics is watching our patients leave the clinic, “with poppin’ skin!”

One aesthetic treatment she couldn’t live without is dermal filler. Her favorite skincare product is SkinBetter Trio, she loves the hydration it provides.
